stash report

Hey, Judy!
No hiding MY head in shame! I skipped a week but I'm back. I decided these posts were so boring...the one's I'm writing anyway, that I'd do it every other week until my life is less busy.

I still have my grandchildren; 1 is in diapers and I'm trying to potty train! They are both charmers...a lot of the time but not all....
Remember the saying 'spoil your grandchildren then send them back?' Not happening.

In: 1.5 yards- I know you're wondering how I went shopping....I am too. Hancock's is practically next door to Mr. Gatti's Pizza which was the destination for my oldest. We went to Hancock's and he walked over to have lunch with his friends. Hey, they have a grocery cart and I could have at least one fastened down. I found one piece on clearance that I thought would make a great zipper bag. Then I needed to go to the quilt store and they had some fat quarters for .95 . I only bought 2- they were stripes and although I have enough stripes, I think, for my Stripe Quilt, I had to get them.
Out: 3/4's of one yard! I figured a rough estimate for a lined zipper bag is 1/8 of a yard. I've made 6 in the last 3 weeks and hadn't counted them yet. Most are pictured here and here. The sixth one hasn't seen the camera yet...I'm trying to get one for my purse that will hold 3x5 cards and my first effort didn't work...but it's cute.
Year to date:
In: 20.25 yards
Out: 85.75 yards

Our favorite camera quit working so we're unhappy with the camera left for us to use. I can blame that camera for no pictures here. (When actually I'm just too lazy, since blogspot fights with me every time I try to load a picture.)

What a great Grandma you are! I always liked stores where there were shopping carts when my kids were little!

grandchildren don't stay little forever, so enjoy them all you can! Let me know how you like the wool batt, I've only heard good things about them, so was wondering how you'll like it. are you quilting it loose or more dense?
